Throwback Thursday vk 23

This year Finland is celebrating 100 years of independence. To honor the anniversary we publish a series of photos from the Port of Turku archives themed Throwback Thursday. The captions are short, so if you have more information about the photos, please share it with us in the Port’s comment fields in LinkedIn and Twitter.

The branch fire station in Kanavaniemi was inaugurated in 1922. The station was built because very large quantities of flammable timber were stored in the harbour area. A sub-manager and 5 men were employed at Kanavaniemi fire station. The station was closed in 1947.
